WEST SEATTLE HOLIDAY SCENE: Reindeer visit Menashe Family Lights

(WSB photos)

Not only can you get a pic with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus at the Menashe Family Lights tonight – you can meet real reindeer too.

As featured in the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide, they’re visiting until about 9 pm at the 5605 Beach Drive SW house famous for thousands of Christmas lights. The two reindeer are from Rainier Reindeer Ranch, which is based in Buckley (near Mount Rainier), part of a herd of 40 reindeer.

By the way, if you’re thinking about going tonight, Beach Drive road conditions were good – the most challenging spot we drove – using arterials to get there – was California SW just south of Admiral Way, crunchy thanks to frozen snow.

    So sad I missed the reindeer! Much appreciation to the Menashe family, and friends, for a wonderful annual event we can all enjoy. So generous to us all. Thank you!
